VIDEO: Pearl Jam perform Pink Floyd classic Comfortably Numb for first time

Pearl Jam delivered their debut live performance of the 1979 Pink Floyd classic, “Comfortably Numb”, during a show in Porto Alegre, Brazil on Wednesday.

The tune was featured as part of the band’s second encore during the 33-song, 3-hour show, the third stop on the group’s South American tour in support of 2013’s “Lighting Bolt.”

The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its release with opening week sales of 166,000 copies.

Earlier in Porto Alegre the set, the Seattle rockers also performed Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive”, an instrumental track from their 1967 debut, “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.”

The South American run sees Pearl Jam performing nine shows, wrapping up with a November 28 stop in Mexico City.
